End-Market Development Pilot Program Design and Coordination

RFP # FAAA 2018000179

The purpose of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) Request for Proposals (RFP) is to solicit proposals for a consultant who has experience providing technical assistance to businesses that have an interest in establishing a new end-market, or expanding an existing end-market, for post-consumer solid waste in the State of Colorado. The State, through its Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity Program, seeks to pilot an innovative new model that will help ensure future grant dollars awarded through this program are dedicated to projects that will be sustainable in the long-term and establish new and robust end-markets for post-consumer recyclables, compostables, and construction and demolition waste in Colorado.

The State recognizes that there are a limited number of domestic markets for these materials, and even fewer markets within Colorado. Additionally, in July 2017, China notified the World Trade Organization of its intention to prohibit the import of certain solid wastes and scrap into their country, including mixed paper and mixed plastics, beginning on January 1, 2018. This has the potential to disrupt domestic markets in a profoundly negative way, impacting the ability of recycling programs to remain financially viable. As a result, the State hopes to spur investment in domestic end-markets within Colorado to ensure the State’s recycling infrastructure continues to grow and flourish.
